BriggsAmasco Earns NFRC Award

BriggsAmasco’s exemplary delivery of a huge waterproofing programme at London’s historic Battersea Power Station has earned an acclaimed NFRC Roofing Award. The project was announced winner of the contest’s ‘Mastic Asphalt’ category at a ceremony held on Friday, May 12th at InterContinental – The O2 in London.

For phase two of the Battersea Power Station development – one of the largest urban regenerations of its type in Europe – BriggsAmasco’s site operatives installed 45,000m² waterproofing and insulation as part of a challenging, complex multiple application.

Commenting on the award, Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Chairman, said: “This is an excellent achievement. The NFRC awards are revered throughout the industry. Therefore, our scoop of the Mastic Asphalt category for our teams’ outstanding waterproofing work on the Battersea Power Station project is extremely good news.”

Logistically and technically, the Battersea Power Station development proved a true test of BriggsAmasco’s renowned workmanship and project management capabilities. It included designing and installing a unique waterproofing solution comprising of IKO Permapark mastic asphalt and IKO Permatec system for the waterproofing of the main access through the site and above the development’s main energy centre. Believed to be the first time such a system had been trialled in the UK, it provided an effective alternative to a traditional tarmac and concrete solution, which was deemed excessively thick for the task.

Dave Maginnis continued: “The Battersea Power Station development is a landmark project for London. It will help to regenerate a long-overlooked area of the capital. To have played a part in its successful completion further enhances our reputation as a leading specialist of waterproofing and roofing installations for high-profile building projects. Congratulations to all BriggsAmasco employees involved with this iconic project.”

BriggsAmasco Wins LRWA Award

BriggsAmasco Waterproofing Design and Installation Excellence Earns Industry Accolade

BriggsAmasco’s delivery of an innovative waterproof system for a Retailer Distribution Centre has been ‘Highly Commended’ in the Liquid Roofing category at this year’s LRWA Awards.

The accolade was announced at a gala presentation evening held on behalf of awards nominees and LWRA members at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.

BriggsAmasco’s Highly Commended award, in conjunction with IKO, was for work carried out at £400 million Retailer Distribution Centre in Swindon. The building has a footprint in the region of 166,000m2 – the equivalent of six-and-a-half football pitches – making it the second-largest warehouse building of its type in the UK. BriggsAmasco was selected to design and install an inverted waterproof system for the warehouse’s 4,700m2 roof.

With support from IKO, the huge programme was an exemplar of waterproofing excellence. This was despite Briggs’ installation teams having to contend with challenges including travel restrictions and material shortages caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking of the company’s award, Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Managing Director said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for all BriggsAmasco staff involved with the Retailer Distribution Centre project. The waterproofing programme was carried out in incredibly challenging circumstances. With the support of IKO, the project’s superb completion was a triumph of design and high-grade workmanship. Congratulations to all for the programme’s exceptional outcome.”

BriggsAmasco Secures Double Triumph at Scottish NFRC Awards

BriggsAmasco is celebrating a dual success after two of its projects won their respective categories at this year’s Scottish NFRC awards.

Judges at the revered annual contest acclaimed Briggs’ superb workmanship on roof waterproofing programmes carried out at Skypark, Business Park in Glasgow, and Diamond Offshore Drilling’s offices in Aberdeen.

Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Managing Director, said: “This is a magnificent achievement. The awards are industry recognition of our installation teams’ excellence in carrying out large and complex roofing projects to the highest standards. Warmest congratulations to all those involved in the Skypark and Diamond Offshore Drilling programmes. You once again did yourselves and the company proud.”

BriggsAmasco’s work at Skypark in Glasgow won best project in the Mastic Asphalt category at this year’s Scottish NRFC awards. The programme’s waterproofing element saw the company complete a 2200m2 installation to improve driver and pedestrian safety at a rooftop car park. It was the first time IKO Permascreed had been used for a waterproofing project in Scotland of such size.

For the Diamond Offshore Drilling project in Aberdeen, BriggsAmasco’s full roof refurbishment of the contract drilling services provider’s two-storey Scottish HQ earned best project in the NFRC awards ‘BUFR’ category. The urgent waterproof installation needed to achieve a range of complex requirements, which BriggsAmasco met – following consultations with the client – by designing and implementing an innovative hybrid solution.

Dave Maginnis continued: These award-winning projects further demonstrate our installation teams’ renown for working with project stakeholders to develop waterproof solutions that meet, and in some cases, exceed expectation. Their experience and expertise in this field is second-to-none.”
